's not going to be the big oblem. when you start lying to the prosecutors about what happened in this incident, i don't see how they c c move forward. >> robin, i want to bring you in. do you agree with dan and think this case can move towards a dismissal now? >> well, there is no choice, unfortunately, but this case to move towards dismissal. the problem is this case stinks all around. while this victim did lie and i agree with dan completely that the fact that there may have been lies that were about applications and asylummut when it becomes about the crime itself it's a problem but i blame the prosecutors for not building a rapport to get this out in the beginning. the lack of transparency about the relationship between the third in command with the office is a problem. something stinks in the case. doesn't change the fact this guy has three prior victims and now this person is also claiming the same sort of sexual abuse, it's a shame for victims everywhere. >> robin, as a prosecutor, if you felt the way you do, as you just laid it out, and you get a victim like this whose credibility is r
be a big deal if the u.s. government couldn't pay its debts but i don't think that's where we're going to end up. we're not greece. greece is a small economy, greece is way, way deeper in hot than we are. people have lots of options where to put money and greece is low on their list because they think there's going to be a default. where the greece metaphor comes in is that greece and portugal and spain and ireland have raised questions about whether governments keep their promises. and to the extent that the congress and the president can agree on a long run fiscal plan, it raises the question of, are we ever going to get our act together so that we don't become greece? >> and is the market yet or do you suspect it will either price this in or panic? >> it's been amazing how calm the markets have been and i think there are two reasons for that. one is, they kind of assume that eventually washington will do what it has to do. and secondly, greece and europe have been such a preoccupation that nobody wants to have money there, so they've moved money to the u.s. as europe has done its ev
should be spending time to get americans back to work and fixing the economy. there is a big issue coming up with regards to the debt ceiling. president ought to be in washington meeting with republicans, meeting with democrats. he shouldn't leave that town until he has an understanding of what it's going to take to get this economy going again and deal with the fiscal crisis, but he is here raising money for a campaign. doesn't even have a primary opponent. >> gregg: might gop governors rally around mitt romney. he is lashing out at the current president? >> i think that is possibility. i think what you elude to, governors think that those from their ranks make the best president. you have heard a number of governors yet to endorse that idea they would like to see a governor as the nominee. they would like to see a governor as the next president. i think you have to wait a while until the field narrows or some things become a little clearer. at this point i just don't think there is enough reason for the vast majority of the governors to come together and endorse and pick a candidate. >>
's talk about some of the big issues right now. jobs, jobs, jobs. it's a crisis, a game of chicken going on in washington right now between the president, the did democrats on one side, republican leadership on the other side. how big of a deal is this august 2nd deadline for raising the debt ceiling? >> well, because i haven't been in government in a long time, i don't know what options the treasury department will have if the debt kreceiling is not lift. my guess is they can pay the bills for a while, after which they won't be able to. so if we let that deadline come and go and we really raise questions about when or political system is mature enough even to pay its bills, i think it's trouble. i realize the idea of voting against raising the debt ceiling has always had great appeal to people. even in good times, a bunch of people vote against raising it because it looks like a free vote. >> when he was senator, president obama didn't vote to raise the debt ceiling. he regrets it now. >> but, you know, when you're not president and you think the vote's there, seems like a freebie and y
they get a tax-exempt status? >>reporter: that is the big question is. any groups that a right, obviously, to form and criticize fox news. the question is, should that be a taxper, subsidized, tax-exempt deductibl activity. media matters is something called a 501 (c) 3 referring to the section of the code that covers it and deductions to media matters are people getting to take off their taxes as if they gave money to the red cross or salvation army. and media matters is increasingly political in recent years and the founder has formatted what is scale add super pac to raise large amounts of money to defeat republican candidates and there are reports that the white house is in the entirely happy with that because they felt he was more effective attacking fox news at media matters. the question is, should that be subsidized by the federal government. deep deep the deep pockets, obviously, george soros and tell us about his past for those that do not know. >>reporter: he is a billionaire, naturalized american citizen and has in the past been caught up in insider trading activity in jump, an
of politics involved here in terms of as you said, they made it a big case from the start and said they had the case. >> yeah, they said they had the case. and we did hear from cyrus mance today. also ken thompson the lawyer for the accuser, for the made, he criticized the manhattan district attorney, said that they perhaps were fearing they mr. going to lose the case. they were setting up for a dismissal. they were very critical. he even referenced manhattan district attorney's recent cases that had failed. so this is a very interesting dynamic. and this could be a major blow for cyrus mance, the manhattan district attorney. today we did not see that strong, confident prosecution we saw in the last two courtrooms. >> brown: laurie levenson, pick up on that last part. the split that we saw when the attorney for the accuser came out was very strongly going after the prosecutor for dropping the ball, for not picking up, and really telling him, do not let go of this. how unusual is something like that? >> well, you know, this is a big advocate for the victim. and a lot of victims don't have su
